If you haven’t noticed yet, be sure to have a look to the sky next time you’re heading into Downtown Guelph. Now adorning the Guelph skyline is the towering crane that will bring the highly anticipated RiverHouse Condominiums to life at the corner of MacDonell and Woolwich Streets. Here at Planet Realty, excitement is growing, with this being the latest of many steps towards bringing this project to fruition. Working closely alongside the Tricar Group, the leading builder of luxury condominiums in Southwestern Ontario, we’re proud to bring such a integral piece to the development of Downtown Guelph.

Anticipation of this project continues to build. Although the development will not be completed until 2014,  Planet Realty will be starting the sales in mid-September- just about a month from now. While buying a pre-construction condo does require a degree of patience in waiting to move in, it gives you the flexibility to sell your current home, plan accomodations accordingly, and maximize the customization of your unique unit. And it’s guaranteed that Guelph will have never seen anything like RiverHouse before.

New high-rise development is certainly a change from the norm in Guelph. Mid-rise development has become more common in the South end, with the Gordon St. corridor intensifying quite rapidly. That said, residential growth of any kind has been absent from the Central Business District for many years.
